Rolex Vintage Submariner 5508 - No Crown Guards 

By Paul Altieri,

The 5508 was launched in 1957 and is often referred to as the “small crown” or “small James Bond”. This was the last Submariner to offer a 100 meter depth rating and features a case with no crown guards which are a staple on all the modern professional models. Fitted with the Rolex caliber 1530, it offered improved reliability compared with its predecessor model – the reference 6536. 

This timepiece has a case that is unpolished and the original bevels are still visible, making this a fantastic find! Another standout feature of this timepiece is its original, glossy, gilt dial with minute chapter ring that remains in great condition. The dial has aged to a slightly tropical color with creamy hour markers and has aged gold Mercedes hands as well. The bezel insert has beautiful age to it, complimenting the entirety of the watch. Rarely do we get the opportunity to offer you such an early example from the Rolex Submariner line. Pick it up today! If you have any questions contact Larry at Larry@bobswatches.com.
